Yesterday marked the 14th day after Craig began his induction chemotherapy, which means he had a second bone marrow biopsy to see if there are any residual leukimia cells in his marrow. If there are some left, he may need to have a second phase of chemo. We hope to hear the results tomorrow. The oncologist says it will take at least 7 to 10 days for Craig’s body to replenish itself with red and white blood cells.
Also, his 5-day fever finally broke today (yay!)– a little relief for this Thanksgiving day. Craig’s brother, Gary and I are hanging out in the hospital room today, reading books and watching movies people have brought for us. We are so thankful to have eachother today, and to have such incredibly loving and supportive friends and family lifting us up.
Thanks a million to our amazing friend Leah and her brother, Dan for creating this site. We look forward to all your words of encouragement every day.
